Society for Algerian Studies

The Society for Algerian Studies will be an affiliate academic society of the LSE Middle East Centre for the academic year 2013-2014.

As part of the agreement, the MEC will organise four events a year at LSE in association with the Society for Algerian Studies. The Society will recommend speakers and topics to the MEC and the events will bear the names of both parties.

The MEC will also host the W.H. Lawson Collection in the Centre Library, which will be available for members of the Society for Algerian Studies to visit and consult.


About the Society for Algerian Studies

The Society for Algerian Studies was founded in 1993, at the initiative of Dr Hugh Roberts, the Society’s first secretary and a distinguished academic specialist on Algeria. In 2011 Dr Roberts became the Edward Keller Professor of North African and Middle Eastern History at Tufts University, Massachusetts.

Membership of the Society includes prominent academics, diplomats and businessmen, while businesses with an interest in Algeria are invited to participate as corporate members. The Society’s founding president was Sir Alan Munro KCMG, a distinguished former British diplomat who was British ambassador in Algiers from 1984 to 1987.

The aim of the Society is to promote the study, knowledge and understanding of Algeria. This includes Algerian languages, arts, cultures, history, politics, economy, geography, and people. The Society is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that is registered as a charity, and is operated and managed by its members.
